A re-telling of the fairy tale Snow White, Biancanieves is a breathtakingly beautiful film and a unique spirited homage to the black and white golden age of Europe’s silent cinema. Set in a romanticised 1920s Seville, Berger’s Snow White is Carmen, the daughter of a famous bullfighter, who lives under the tyrannical rule of her monstrous, evil stepmother, Encarna. She escapes and joins a troup of bullfighting dwarves, where her beauty and natural talent in the ring attract notice from the press. But soon the news reaches Encarna, who at last knows where to find Carmen, and she prepares for the final showdown.
Biancanieves features a beautiful soundtrack by Alfonso de Vilallonga, who has composed the music to Transsiberian (Brad Anderson, 2008), Princesas Fernando Leon, 2005), and Horas De Luz (Manolo Matji, 2004) amongst others.
In addition to his soundtrack work, this versatile artist has released seven recordings of his own songs, written music and lyrics for musical theatre, and occasionally performed as an actor.
